Maestros Muti and Mehta join breakaway Maggio Musicale group

The two conductors have signalled support for a no-political group of activists at the Florence theatre who are trying to save if from closure by a range of independent initiatives.

Andrea Baggio, one of the organisers tells us: ‘IO SONO IL MAGGIO is a cultural association created by the passion of some theatre workers with the goal to pull the Teatro del Maggio and its audience closer through an experiment of crowdfunding, the first in Italy in Opera House’s field (as far as we know), and the offer of cultural events.’

Here’s Zubin Mehta accepting his membership card. Check out the group’s website and the Facebook page.
